From Fat to Fit is a weight loss guidebook authored by Carole Carson. Her claim is that if her recommendations, as outlined in the book, are closely followed, then the body can be converted into a fat burning machine and that it will be much easier to achieve weight loss goals.

This book is essentially an account of Carson’s efforts to recreate herself ahead of her sixtieth birthday. It is made up of a series of publications, including newspaper articles, in which she detailed her efforts to lose a total of 62 pounds. Throughout this journey, she managed to encourage 1000 other people to join her to seek their own weight loss goals. When all was said and done, the group lost a total of over 8000 pounds.

The From Fat to Fit book is designed to provide a wider audience with the information they require for seeking their own lower body weight and better overall health. She is careful to point out that the process of losing weight as outlined in this book is not a matter of dieting. It is also not about deprivation, nor about the amount of willpower that a person may possess. Instead, it is meant to provide its readers with a real-life, practical and usable lifestyle approach that concentrates on building habits based on increased activity levels and healthier eating choices.

Considering the design, tone, and approach of From Fat to Fit, this book is most likely a style of weight loss that is most suited toward an audience of women within the post-menopausal age group. This book addresses the weight loss struggles that are specific to women who are struggling with a lack of success in losing weight after menopause. Though this book could be effective for women within other age groups, it is not written to address the weight loss needs of women who are younger than 50 years of age.

Overall, customer reviews for From Fat to Fit have been quite positive, and women seem to be satisfied with the overall feel of the book and its achievability. The author, herself, has followed the program and stuck to it, providing a first-hand example of its success not only in the short-term, but over time, as well. She and those who followed her program throughout her own weight loss have demonstrated that when it is done correctly, muscle and energy are built while fat is lost.

PROS
  • Assists women in dealing with weight gain/weight loss issues that are specific to the time in their lives following menopause.
  • Many customers have stated that they found the author’s From Fat to Fit story to be highly inspiring.
  • It is not based on deprivation or starvation, but correct healthy activity and eating choices, instead.
CONS
  • Only women are targeted in this program.
  • The book speaks only to individuals who are older than 50 years.

I was disappointed in this book because I didn’t feel that it clearly showed that it wasn’t meant for younger women, too. I didn’t feel it spoke to me.

I thought this was a very inspiring book. It was well written without being too bossy and it was clear and easy to follow. The meal plans and recipes are very good and you don’t feel like you are being too deprived. I also think the section on exercise is a very good read. It’s not so much about what you do, as long as you do something that gets you moving. Overall a great book if you want to improve your lifestyle and lose weight.

I like the way you said that it’s written without being “bossy”. As funny as it sounds, that’s absolutely right. It gives suggestions but it’s not pushy about it. I don’t like it when some authors of these books write like they have the meaning of life figured out.

This book is not just for older people but the concepts apply to those of all ages. It is a great incentive for anyone to take their weight and health seriously. I also enjoyed the enthusiasm of the author and her “you can do it” attitude.
